Mobile Phone Friendly Web Site Design

Consumers are searching for your business on their phone by the millions every month.

Get the picture?  Harriet needs a car title loan. She whips out her phone… taps-out “car title loan Dallas”… looks at the Google search results on her tiny, little cell phone screen… she clicks on one of the web site links she sees in the search results… she “lands” on your non-mobile phone friendly web site that requires her to scroll and squint and mistakenly click a link that annoys her. So she gives up on you! You just lost her! (Hopefully she didn’t click on one of your Google Adwords PPC ads!!)

Comparison-Mobile Phone Friendly Web Site
What’s Harriet to do? She goes back to the search results on her phone and clicks the next “car title loan Dallas” link. But this time she lands on your mobile phone friendly web site here, clicks on the “Call Us” button and makes an appointment with you! Additionally, Harriet can text you, email you, click a Map to you…

TODAY, businesses MUST EMBRACE  phone friendly web sites or DIE :o)

Every month, millions of consumers use their mobile phone to search for financial focused businesses. Payday loans, car title loans, tax services, pawn shops, check cashing stores… Mobile device searches now dominate. Our customers are simply not using their laptop and desktop computers to find us any longer.  There is a MAJOR shift in consumer behavior taking place.

Finance and lending  searches coming from mobile devices grew 70% already this year! Hard as this maybe to accept, it’s not uncommon for a loan applicant to fill out an application while using their mobile device. Phone searches for financial services is only one example of the huge shift in consumer tasks and behaviors to smartphones.

Finding a new dentist, a notary, a salon, a pizza shop, sushi restaurant, lawyer, planning a trip, buying a car…  are rapidly increasing  on smartphones and are taking place on  websites and apps that make it easy for them. Business owners that “get” that consumers have gone mobile and evolve towards this change in consumer behavior will kick their competitors butts and WIN!

So… how do you WIN?

4. Understand the difference between an “app” (you don’t need one) and a simple redirect of your customer to your mobile phone friendly web site when they use their phone to find you.

Smart Mobile Phone Friendly Web Sites Best Practices

Mobile phone specific web site design is much different than web site design for desktops, laptops and tablets. Your customer who “finds you” via their phone is in a hurry. They don’t want to scroll for half-a-mile looking for your phone number, a map to your location, a coupon or discount to a “deal” you’re offering.

So, MAKE IT EASY. On your “mobilized web site,” place these “click-to-call” and “map us” buttons above the fold. Eliminate “scrolling” by your smart phone web site visitor. Place these “call-to-action” buttons in their face!

  • Language on mobile phone friendly web sites must be kept to a minimum. Eliminate scrolling as much as possible.
  • The web page your smart phone customer “lands-on” should have multiple “clickable” elements.” This includes your logo and all images.
  • Include a product image, logo, coupon… that is clickable. Short contact forms and applications can make sense as well.
  • Include special offer or discount language offering a deal for all your mobile customers.
  • Make certain your mobile phone friendly web site comes with a “Stat Package;” a statistics reporting service so you know how your mobile phone friendly web site is performing.
  • Get started NOW!  Don’t wait until it’s too late. Consumers by the millions are picking up their phones to find you!

Payday Loan Mobile Web Sites – Why Retailers Must Have Them

Owners of payday loan companies, pawn shops, car title lenders, check cashers, pizza makers, sushi restaurants and more must have MPF – mobile phone friendly – web sites because their customers are using their phones to find these services! Within 2 years, consumers won’t be able to purchase anything but a smart phone. Mobile search is already beginning to dominate the landscape.

Think about this. Your customer needs a car title loan. They whip out their phone, search for “car title loans” and their search results are “served” to them on their phone. Their built-in GPS (global positioning service) will offer them car title loan locations in their city, zip code, whatever. They click on one of these search results. If the car title lender is smart, they’ll serve up a web site that looks something like this:
http://m.automobilepawn.com/ Notice the “m.”

If the car title lender is not so smart, they serve up this http://www.automobilepawn.com/ on this potential customer’s phone :o( Not good!

Want to see this in action? Just visit http://www.AutomobilePawn.com on your desktop, laptop, iPad…

Now, pick up a phone and type in http://www.AutomobilePawn.com again. Our “mobilzation” process recognizes you’re accessing AutomobilePawn via a smart phone and magically, you see the “Click to Call,” “Map to Us” “Text Us,” and all the rest. Obviously, this “mobile friendly web site makes it MUCH easier for your customer to do business with you! This is a no-brainer.
